Stoke, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A charming detached period cottage that has been tastefully modernised in recent years offering well appointed characterful accommodation together with a detached double garage incorporating a games room, and stunning landscaped gardens set in the heart of the village
A detached Grade II Listed period cottage with the tremendous benefit of a fairly recently fully rethatched roof, and has also been sympathetically restored by the present owners to an excellent standard. The property now offers beautifully presented accommodation comprising a generous reception hall, sitting room, dining room, study/fourth bedroom, an open plan well-fitted kitchen with breakfast/informal dining area and an extended kitchen area/utility. There is also a rear porch and excellent shower room at the foot of a second staircase rising to bedrooms two and three. The main bedroom has its own staircase and the landing forms a dressing area that extends between a cosy double bedroom and a luxury en suite bathroom. Outside there is the benefit of generous off-road parking and a detached double garage, one bay used as a garage whilst the other is a bike store to the front with a games room/home office to the rear. The surrounding cottage garden is beautifully landscaped and there is a choice of terraces for entertaining and barbecues.
The cottage is situated in the hamlet of Stoke which has a public house and the Bourne rivulet running through the valley. The nearby village of St Mary Bourne has a primary school, church, modern village hall, a Post Office and shop, three public houses and cricket ground with bowling green. The nearby towns of Andover and Newbury offer fast mainline rail services to Waterloo and Paddington respectively, together with a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities. An excellent rail service to Waterloo is also available from Whitchurch, about three miles distant. The cathedral city of Winchester is approximately 20 minutes drive away. The A34 and A303 roads and M3 and M4 motorways are all within easy reach.
